Kiss Technology announced at IFA 2005 2 DVD players that can play high definition material using regular DVD-ROM and WMA encoding. Hell with Blu-Ray and HD-DVD and the format war of all times. Kiss DVD players understand Window Media Video. Company claims that WMV compression format is four times less in size than conventional MPEG-2 used for DVDs. Kiss also said that DVD players will support MPEG-4 video, MP3 and Ogg Vorbis audio. Both DVD players will sport a WiFi connection presumably to stream media from wherever. One of the players reportedly will have an 80Gb hard drive. No other information is available at this time.
